What is MyFitnessPal?

MyFitnessPal is a diet and activity tracking smartphone app and website. According to Apple, it has auto-renewing systems. The software incorporates gamification aspects to encourage users to stick to their fitness and diet objectives.

The History of MyFitnessPal

MyFitnessPal was founded and created by Albert and Mike Lee in 2005. MyFitnessPal was purchased by athletic gear company Under Armour for $475 million on February 4, 2015. At the time, MyFitnessPal had 80 million users.



Customize your Daily Macronutrient Goals

MyFitnessPal creates macronutrient goals (carbohydrates, protein, and fats) for you based on expert-recommended macronutrient percentages: Protein provides 20% of calories, carbohydrates provide 50% of calories, and fat provides 30% of calories. Premium, on the other hand, allows you to change your macronutrient objectives by percentages and grams if you follow a unique eating plan focused on specific macronutrients (think: low-carb, high-protein, IIFYM).


Customize your Daily Calorie Goal

MyFitnessPal creates a calorie goal for you based on your desired rate of weight loss or gain. On a day-to-day basis, this calorie goal remains largely consistent. You can set different calorie goals for different days of the week with Premium. This is useful if you need to schedule a cheat day, or if you use calorie cycling or intermittent fasting to achieve your weight objectives.


Quick-Add Macronutrients you Care about

You can utilize the quick-add function for carbohydrates, protein, and lipids in the same manner you can for calories in your food diary if you're a Premium subscriber. If macronutrients are more important to you than your overall calorie goal, this is a useful tool.
